Tim Edey is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and singer who has been gaining an increasing following since winning the BBC Radio Folk Awards prize for Musician of the Year in 2012 (alongside Best Duo for his collaboration with Brendan Power).
“Tim Edey is brilliant – in every which way. As a guitarist he has few peers. As a box player he’s a magician. As a character he’s off the scale.” – Colin Irwin, fRoots.
Tim, originally from Broadstairs in Kent and of Irish descent, honed his style learning from his father Richard, a fine guitarist, and listening to Ed Boyd, Steve Cooney and Django Reinhardt. Tim tours the world regularly and has worked with some of the biggest names in Celtic/Contemporary roots music including; The Chieftains, Dougie MacLean, Christy Moore, Sharon Shannon, Natalie MacMaster, Altan, Stockton’s Wing, Capercaillie, Brendan Power, Michael McGoldrick, Seamus Begley, The Barra MacNeills, JP Cormier, Shaun Davey, Session A9, Wolfstone, Lunasa, Vinnie Kilduff, Mary Black, Session A9, Julie Fowlis, Frankie Gavin ... to name but a few!
“One of the world’s greatest melodeon players”. “Utterly fantastic. Sheer, wonderful ebullient music” MIKE HARDING BBC RADIO
Tim’s solo career started back in 2001 with the release of his album “Daybreak” which featured Michael McGoldrick and Lucy Randall and was an album that, with the exception of the three tracks with guests, Tim literally played every instrument: melodeon, button accordion, guitar, whistle, bodhran, banjo, piano, mandolin and bass. ‘Daybreak’ announced his arrival on the scene in the UK and Ireland and word quickly spread internationally, with tours in Scandinavia and the USA soon afterwards. After winning the BBC Radio 2 award in 2012, Tim headlined at Summerfolk 2014, one of Canada’s biggest and best loved annual Festivals, and then performed at the Costa Del Folk Festival in Portugal, in 2015.
Tim undoubtedly has a name on the world stage in his own right and is rated by many to be one of the world’s finest ever melodoen and guitar players in the folk & contemporary scene today. His "dropped D" tuning technique and use of nylon strings make him an unusual player within the field of acoustic guitarists so he’s often sought out by other professional musicians and is highly regarded by his contemporaries.
“Our Celtic world is lucky to have Tim Edey - my favourite guitarist and nicest person in the world! After touring, performing and recording with Tim over the years, I can tell you all he is an incredible talent with a most unique style. His music is so full of feeling, energy and vulnerability that he has brought me to tears at times with some of his
performances - and then makes me laugh a breath later! Most recently, my 9 year old has taken online lessons from Tim on the accordion. I am so grateful for his teaching skills and generosity to our son. Thanks Tim!” – Natalie MacMaster, Ontario, summer 2017.
Tim’s talents go from strength to strength, as testified by his nomination again this year (2018) for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Musician of the Year. Recent CD releases include “The Sleeping Tunes” (2017) exclusively featuring his contemplative guitar work, and “How do you Know?” (2016). His live solo shows are a stunning mix of world music inspired instrumental virtuosity and passion with a strong Celtic theme, and above all a highly entertaining night of musical genius.
